Combating Nuclear Smuggling: DHS Research and Development on Radiation Detection Technology Could Be Strengthened
David C. Trimble (au); Timothy M. Persons (au)
Preventing terrorists from smuggling nuclear or radiological material to carry out an attack in the U.S. is a top national priority. The Department of Homeland Security劌製 (DHS劌製) Domestic Nuclear Detection Office劌製 (DNDO劌製) mission is to improve capabilities to deter, detect, respond to, and attribute resopnsibility for nuclear terrorist attacks, in coordination with domestic and international partners. As part of this mission, DNDO conducts R&D on radiation and nuclear detection devices. This report (1) provides information on the types of R&D projects DNDO started in FY 2008 through 2013; (2) examines the extent to which DNDO劌製 process for planning and selecting R&D projects to fund aligns its investments with gaps in the Global Nuclear Detection Architecture (GNDA); and (3) examines the steps DNDO takes to evaluate the outcomes of R&D projects in which it invests. Tables and figures. This is a print on demand report.
